5 top non-Lib Dem LibDig postings to look at

1. David Cameron’s not as stupid as he looks (Guardian): “The ever-brilliant David Mitchell sticks it to David Cameron and the Tories for talking the language of making tough choices while making really easy choices.” – submitted by stephenftall.
2. Holding out against the internet (Spectator): “6 things teh internets haven’t killed (not so sure about 3 and 5, tho).” – submitted by stephenftall.
3. No Net Gains for Party Politics: “The internet general election’: is it coming? have we already had it? will it never be?” – submitted by markpack.
4. Godstone farm and ‘elf n safety’ risks: “A word of sanity from Paul Waugh on health and safety scares.” – submitted by markpack.
5. Some evidence for your review, Mr Balls: “A bit of liberalism peaks out from the corner of an area usually dominated by scares and demands for more central government action: “Fifty nine per cent of voters thought that the state already did enough in attempting to ensure the safety of children, while a seventy nine per cent majority thought that in general, the state has too much of a say in what people can and cannot do.” – submitted by markpack.
